Disclaimer: I am not the best storyteller. I would have introduced myself but I’m sure that won’t be relevant to you, so let’s get straight to the issue at hand. Background:Â Earlier this year, I changed my mobile number on Uber and the login details I used for that number, like my email address and Facebook account, were still linked to the old number so basically I couldn’t use the app for a while. My brother’s phone also got spoiled this year, leaving him with a yam for a while.
There have been interesting twists in the curious story of Sebastian Roy Osumanu as juxtaposed against that of the University of Amsterdam on the issue of the supposed 5 PhD awards won by the Ghanaian student during his graduation ceremony. Earlier reports, which went viral on many Ghanaian media, had stated that 28-year-old Sebastian Roy Osumanu swept 5 awards whiles graduating with a PhD on September 1st, 2017.
If nothing at all, some of these Kumasi-based enthusiasts took to social media platforms like Twitter to “request” Uber for Kumasi. And @Uber_Ghana has been teasing the idea of launching in Kumasi for a while now. Finally the day arrived when Uber Ghana decided to expand its operations to their second city in the country, which also marked their 616th around the world.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
